Ultimately, implants would allow for “uncompressed” communication between people, with the compression part being language. So instead of translating your thoughts into language, you can upload them directly to another person’s brain, which would increase communication speed by orders of magnitude.
Is that real?
Or can it be made real?
Do we think outside of language at all?
We process thoughts like sequences. If we also create images and sounds, as in dreams, then these may be able to be transmitted to others directly. Would this fundamentally alter consciousness forever?
I actually have a screenplay along these lines…
